Pumpkins with a Purpose
First Parish hosts an annual pumpkin sale with proceeds going to outreach causes.
Adopt a Family
Every Christmas, First Parish adopts local families recommended by Lifeworks* and helps to fulfill their Christmas wishes. Church elves shop for the adopted family members who might not otherwise receive gifts.
*Lifeworks provides a variety of programs, services and supports to the communities of Greater Boston and Norfolk County. Lifeworks advocates for persons with disabilities and provides opportunities for empowerment and equity.
Donations for the food pantry are collected periodically to support area families.
